Alan Freeman - Wants List!
bookmark this page: http://home.btconnect.com/ultimathule/wants.htm
One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!
Excepting those items listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for Audion articles, or our various planned Italian and French books, etc. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. But, please do not offer us anything that is too crackly or of poor quality.
Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email
me: firstname.lastname@example.org with your wants list? We may be able to come to
a swap arrangement! I've generally swapped physical CDR's. But now can cope
easily with swapping online. I usually use Google Drive which is a far
more stable way of uploading and sharing. So, if you want to share an album
and/or swap, my Gmail address is: email@example.com or alternatively you can
upload via Sendspace or whatever other service you prefer.
Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

(Spectator Records SL 1011) 1970 Denmark, supposedly good jazz-rock
Terrain Vague - POUR QU'IL TE RESTE UN PEU DE MOI (SRC 543 954) 1981 French folk, could be interesting?
Mark Tindle – RITUAL STRUCTURES, CD Ancient Sun Music ASM2004CD - looks intriguing
Adrian Wagner - DISTANCES BETWEEN US (Atlantic: LP) I have an
original LP which is now well-worn & crackly (badly worn sizzle on the
Mellotron too), so I need a a near mint LP or recording from a mint or ex+ LP, not
from the Music Suite CD which is remixed & ruined! The downloads I've
found (inc. the Mutant Sounds one) are all from the remixed CD (note: instant
clues are the added electronic percussion and sound effects)!!!

Stomu Yamash'ta - IROHA: TEN/CHI - I have the RVC: 2LP, but would love to get a flac rip of the Japanese CD reissue. I can't believe how obscure the CD's are of this. All web links I've found are dead. Recently supplied copy turned out to by vinyl, & not as good as what I have. The 2CD apparently came out in 2008 according to HMV in Japan, and was advertised at about £30, although it may never have happened. No evidence of it existing anywhere now.

Abramose - ABRAMOSE, LP private 808 (1975) most curious
looking, could be good? single is nice!
Clues and more info welcome. Some of the musicians we
know as members of bands, but not solo.
Belle De Jour - Sustain Love/Etoiles de la Nuit - is on the French new wave discography where it says
Anita/Je me fais tout petit - pop, it seems
Solitude - 3 singles on Theleme label (got Been Gone So Long on Puissance 13+2, Le Roi Du Monde on YouTube)
Croque Mitaine - LA CHANSON DU FOU - apparently akin to Malicorne, so should be worth investigating! Found a picture, seems we've had it in the past & didn't keep
cassette label from Japan...
If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (was written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
What do we already know? Check the A-Z list of over 4,700 prog & experimental artists in our UT Web Encyclopedia!
Note: Some items on this page we may have previously had but forgot about. A small front cover jpg may jog my memory!
